In-Depth Testing of Computer Systems Regulated by FDA

Live Webinar

  • 90 minutes

Effective and compliant computer system validation is critical to any pharmaceutical or FDA-regulated organization. Following best practices for developing a validation program that includes planning, execution and maintenance components will ensure that these efforts will meet all regulatory agency requirements and expectations. Preparedness will improve your relationship with the agency and ensure a more cooperative and successful audit experience.

FDA requires that all computer systems used to produce, manage and report on GxP (GMP, GLC, GCP) related products be validated and maintained in accordance with specific rules. You’ll learn all about how to prepare your system validation documentation, including test protocols, scripts, and summary reports for an FDA audit of your company’s computer systems.

Join this session by expert speaker Carolyn Troiano, where she explain will how to construct solid functional requirements that can be used to create functional requirements that are unique and testable.

Session Highlights:

  • Determine the category of your system, based on GAMP 5 from ISPE

  • Determine the risks associated with the various ways your system may fail

  • Use the category and risk, develop a rationale for the level of testing that will be needed to assure your system is thoroughly vetted

  • Understand the FDA requirements for documentation of all testing activities

  • Understand how to write a test protocol for each phase of testing:

  • Installation Qualification (IQ)

  • Operational Qualification (OQ)

  • Performance Qualification (PQ) [also referred to as User Acceptance Testing, or UAT]

  • Understand how to develop test scripts and acceptance criteria

  • Learn how to identify test discrepancies and distinguish the type: test script errors, tester errors, system errors

  • Learn how to document all testing and the summary reports

  • Learn about maintaining the system in a validated state, and keeping testing as a ‘living’ exercise that runs through the system life cycle

Why You Should Attend:

The Webinar will focus on testing as a key element of Computer System Validation (CSV). The level of testing must reflect both the potential risk associated with failure of the system to function properly. It must also be based on the systems’ classification in accordance with GAMP 5. You will learn the way to develop a detailed rationale for testing and how to ensure that it is fully executed and documented in accordance with FDA requirements.
